Gypsy Living

Picture 1If you are like me, you have at some time fantasized about a gypsy lifestyle that embraces the world around you without any rules or obligations.  Imagine letting go of all the things that don’t really matter and living with only the things you love with no other reason than you love them and they speak to you.  This New Yorker literally brought that concept home.  I guess you could call it freestyle living….collecting amazing objects from around the world no matter of their style, origin or what they cost and curating a space of your own that takes you on a personal journey from the comfort of your own home.  Each object takes you to a place, a moment in time or a soft spot in your heart.

The whimsical combination of strong vintage industrial era furnishings and cozy bespoke objects from centuries past reflects that personal, self-indulgent style that is not only respectful but also inspiring.
